lyrics

The horses left last night
fled in the lamppost light
the footprints on the curb
showed their balancing skills
and they whisked themselves away

I fed them on pedigree food
Poached puree and caviar
from a jar
I groomed them with a silver brush
Singing them songs of ancient hoofs till they slept

My stables are empty
Full of horse shit and hay
My stables are empty
But I’ll sit in them anyway

Picking the dirt from under my nails
Sat on my saddle and sulking
Clacking coconuts shells for comfort
But I don’t know what to do with myself
Now I’m horseless

The horses left last night
Fled in the lamppost light
Their hair in the carpet as they trotted off head high
And gracefully opened the door

I gave them all the skills
To dressage with the best in town
Praising their style as the swept up the glory
With endless flowing mains.

My stables are empty
Full of horse shit and hay
My stables are empty
But I’ll sit in them anyway

Pinned head to toe in my rosettes
Sat on my saddle and sulking
Overdosing on galloping dreams
But I don’t know what to do with myself now I’m horseless
Now I’m horseless
